“I love this show more than I think, anything. It has never been a job for me. It’s been my life,” Harington said to a small group of people. “This will always be the greatest thing I’ll ever do and be a part of. You all have been my family. I love you for it. Thank you so much.”

Before Harington spoke, showrunner D.B. Weiss said a few words about the actor. The moment he told Harington his watch has ended, the actor became visibly emotional.

On his final day to the set, Harington wore a crew jacket given to him by one of the extras on the show. On the front it says, “Game of Thrones Season VIII.” The left sleeve says the teams the crew member was a part of during the show.
